You can't really enforce it. Unless you want to make entry to your house a $5 cover like a keg party. Which wouldn't be too friendly. If youhave GOOD friends a simple tip jar near the tap or fridge (with a little emphasize by you) would probably work for a few bucks.

I have a grain fund that keeps me in beer. Four people buy me a sack of grain a month.

20 years ago my Uncle bought a kegerator and stocked it with BMC. He was the most popular man in town until he asked for help buying the beer. Shortly after that he quit stocking it and all his "friends" disappeared.

Best beer to drink is OPB. (other peoples beer).

Just tell them to poney up $12 each batch or they won't get any beer. As for the "hard core" guys. keep a baseball bat near ya. it usually works.

Lot's of good ideas.. The bottom line is. Are they really friends or just liking the free beer? Real friends will pony up and respect you for it. The rest can take a hike and you'll be better off for it.

+1 I used to have moocher unappreciative friends Back in college... wised up and shed the douchebags.. never looked back. those pecks are always the ones ruining good things for others via bad choices or over the top behavior. first ones to get you busted.

Just hang a receipt of your recent ingredients purchase right next to the keg next to the "Beer Fund" cup. If that doesn't work, then Adios Amigos!

I just go with buying supplies for ya works well for me right now......I still give out free samples a few 22oz here or 6zer there to input.........then someone want's a case so I just have them buy me more stuff to make another batch......works well since I get over 2 cases a batch.

For at my house drining I have a large water jug dontation jar (was my hot tub fund) I only wish I had used it for a secondary instead now.
